Throw Tomato Suggestions for a Hail to the Chief replacement

Recently, I've decided that Hail to the Chief should be suspended for the duration of President Piece-of-Work's term. What should be played in lieu of it though? The only appropriate song I can think of is Mac Davis' Hard to be Humble. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHEfSzUbh3s

Any other suggestions?

I would say Piggies, were it not for the fact that the subject is plural. Otherwise quite appropriate, especially the "damn good whacking."

(I should probably state for the record that I mean whacking in the "whacking upside the head" sense, and only if authorized by congress, and not in the mob-hit sense.)

"Go to Hell, Chief." We could write it.

Well if you're going THAT route, I think this more accurately sums the man up. Maybe we could write some Trump-specific lyrics.

As a Canadian hockey fan, I know the Russian national anthem well enough to hum the whole thing.

That seems appropriate given yesterday's horrendous performance.

I'm going with FDT by YG and Nipsey Hussle. Not safe for work due to language if you don't know the song.

Or of course, we could just alter the lyrics to this one a little.

Think we could sell him on "Entrance of the Gladiators" on the name? Its a march, so it would be majestic and martial, things he like in spades. And gladiators, tough men who slay their enemies. It is like the reality TV show of the olden times. It was also played under the name "Thunder and Blazes", he'd like that name too. We could play him the first 15 seconds or so, see how he likes it.

And since it's associated with circuses, we're all free to think of clowns.

But clowns have weird hair and oddly colored skin and many people are terrified of them...
